Turnstone Estates has today submitted a full planning application for the Northern Gateway Leisure development in Colchester.
This application follows on from the Reserved Matters Application that was submitted in March which, when combined with today’s application, will deliver:
a multi-screen IMAX cinema to be operated by Cineworld;
up to thirteen restaurant units;
an eighty bed hotel;
indoor active leisure units;
flexibility to convert some of the restaurants to further indoor active leisure use;
car parking for circa 750 vehicles;
high quality landscaped piazza.
It is expected that both applications will go to the same Planning Committee in the Summer.
Chris Goldsmith, Managing Director of Turnstone Estates, said:
“The submission of the full planning application today makes clear our intent to deliver a leisure development for the Northern Gateway site that will be unparalleled in Essex and the wider Region.
Anchored by a multi-screen IMAX Cineworld and providing a number of indoor active leisure facilities, up to thirteen restaurants and a hotel, the development will be a great addition to Colchester.
The applications will now be subject to full scrutiny in the run up to being determined by the planning committee hopefully in the Summer.”
